disproportionately affect african-american voters. so it was of particular interest to us yesterday when senator rand paul of kentucky told a louisville-based npr station, "i don't think there's objective evidence that we're precluding african-americans from voting any longer." paul's comments came many the wake of new voting restrictions such as the latest and most sweeping law out of north carolina which requires a government-issued i.d. to vote, cuts early voting by a week, eliminates same-day reg strigs, and kills the state-wide voter registration drive. texas, virginia, florida, and pennsylvania have all passed similar strict voerd i.d. laws, some of which are tangled up in the court system but if they prevail could indirectly disenfranchise minority voters. this is what paul had to say about voter i.d. speaking at howard university, a historically black college, back in april of this year. >> i think if you liken using a driver's license to literacy test, you demean the horror of what happened in the '40s and '50s, maybe probably from 1910 all the way through 1960s in the south. it
